Principal's Message

Ms. Keeton



Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Keeton

As Principal of Deep Creek-Damascus K-8 it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school! DCD is the only K-8 school in the Gresham-Barlow School District and we value the unique opportunity to develop relationships with students and families over their years here with us.

 We are committed to providing an exceptional educational experience for our students.  We work to engage each child in rich, rigorous, and authentic learning experiences. Children are naturally curious, and we desire to foster and grow that curiosity in all subject areas.

We focus on developing the whole child, addressing the intellectual, academic and character growth of each one.  As you walk through our halls and visit our classrooms you will see evidence of meaningful academic work, caring relationships, and outstanding student art.

It is my pleasure and privilege to partner with the people who comprise the DCD Community as we learn, explore and grow together.
